Asia Pacific Geoparks Network – Exchange Programme with the China Global Geoparks Network (8 -14 October 2014)

With the goal of promoting geopark concepts and facilitating knowledge exchange and sharing among the China Global Geoparks Network (CGN), Hong Kong Global Geopark of China is organizing a seven-day Asia Pacific Geoparks Network Exchange Programme in China from 8 to 14 October 2014.   Aspiring geopark managers from Dunhuang Yardang National Geopark and the Gansu area, and geopark experts and partners from Beijing and Zigong Global Geopark will be joined by managers from Hong Kong Global Geopark, as well as representatives of the Lions Nature Education Fund. With a broad range of exchange activities, the programme provides an excellent platform for networking among CGN members and opportunities for participants to learn about geopark leaders’ vision and insight on global geoparks.

The Lions Nature Education Fund (LNEF) is an official charitable entity of Lions Club International. One of the leading non-government organisations in Hong Kong, the LNEF promotes and supports a number of educational and geo-conservation initiatives related to Hong Kong Global Geopark. In response to the worldwide environmental protection scheme and with the aim of enriching Hong Kong’s environmental facilities, a Lions Nature Education Centre was established in 1990.
